One of Whittier’s true gems is hidden in plain sight. The Head of the Bay is literally that: Where the shimmering waters of Prince William Sound meet the shores of this charming town — and it’s a beautiful spot to visit. Come with a picnic and take it all in as you relax. You’ll also find a metal fire ring, perfect for a summer evening bonfire. Want to camp there? It’s more popular with those driving RVs or campervans than tent campers.
Biking, fish viewing, a natural history center and a flat hike to a glacier are within easy reach of this quiet, intimate campground in Portage Valley at the head of Turnagain Arm in the Chugach National Forest. The 12 sites in the graveled, wooded Black Bear are yards from the Trail of Blue Ice — a non-motorized multi-use trail that traverses the valley floor.
